Note: Adapted from the 1943 edition of "Joy of Cooking" by Irma Rombauer.
1 cup cake flour
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs, separated
2 cups sour cream
1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the cake flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda.
2. In a small bowl, mix the egg yolks and sour cream until smooth and whisk them into the dry ingredients.
3. Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Stir approximately one-third of the egg whites into the batter to lighten it, then gently fold in the remaining egg whites. Bake according to manufacturer's instructions for your waffle maker. Serve immediately; they will soften on standing.
